Complaint says crosses at Catholic school offensive, prevent Muslim prayers

Crosses in every room at Washingon D.C.’s Catholic University of America are a human rights violation that prevent Muslim students from praying.

That’s the complaint to the Washington, D.C. Office of Human Rights filed by a professor from rival George Washington University across town.

GWU Law School Professor John Banzhaf takes the Catholic institution to task for acting “probably with malice” against Muslim students in a 60-page complaint that cites “offensive” Catholic imagery all over the Catholic school, which he says hinder Muslims from praying.

Stupid people doing stupid stuff stupidly.

The secularists will succeed, because their is a pervasive belief within the court system that Christianity must be subordinate to all other faiths.

The Catholic University -- which I never heard of before -- asked for this when they started accepting Moslem students (probably because so many of them have more money than clueless American students).

I read this earlier. I don't think it will go anywhere. I mean, if you are offended, don't go there. It's a Catholic school, you're going to see Catholic stuff. That's like going to the University of Texas and being offended at seeing images of Bivo the Longhorn.

I'm a CUA student. Banzhaf periodically does this publicity stunt and it never goes anywhere. The Muslim students on campus hate him. Many think he has mental issues.

Oh, and Iannes, I'm not going to feed you, since you're a troll, but please...shut up.

It may have gone nowhere in the past, but it only takes once. As long as institutions take "public" money, there is the threat that they must conform.

If there are Muslim students there, then CUA is just another secular, public accommodation which happens to be run by Catholics.

Take the crosses down.

I'm legitimately fascinated by the number of people who seem to agree that the presence of non-Catholic students at CUA means they are a secular institution and should take their crosses down. Can somebody please explain this to me in more detail?

I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure The Anti-Gnostic was being sarcastic.

Ummm... Probably not.
